Mass Effect for PC!!
 
http://masseffect.bioware.com/forums...7397&forum=104

Announcement by BioWare...so it's real!!

Miltiades 02-12-2008 11:44 AM

Just saw this five minutes ago. I've always wanted to play Mass Effect, and I didn't want to buy the X360 just for this game. Now, I don't have to!

Here's the announcement on Yahoo.

Ghost Down 02-12-2008 11:46 AM

OMG! w00t!!! AWESOME!!!!

mur'phon 02-12-2008 11:47 AM

Yay, let the modding comence (soon).

stingerhs 02-12-2008 12:08 PM

very nice, but its rather pointless for me since i already have the game for the 360. still, at least it will be easier to snipe and pull of headshots by aiming with the mouse. i just wish Bioware was going to add something more to the PC version aside from an improved/optimized GUI (as stated in the announcement). if there's some nice mods out there, i'll probably pick it up eventually, but otherwise, its a rather moot point for me.

Uilleand 02-12-2008 12:51 PM

Oh, I'm sure I'll buy it....just cuz I'm such a BioWare CrackWhore...*chuckle*
I cannot WAIT for the oh-so-talented mod community to get hold of it!
(I'm also very interested in having an improved inventory...*grrr*)

Bob Lion54 02-12-2008 01:52 PM

Awesome.

We pretty much knew it was going to happen eventually, but it's cool to see an official announcement especially because of the release date. I thought about getting a 360, but since Mass Effect was really the only game that interested me, I decided it wasn't worth it. Now I get to finally play it in May. This make Bob Happy Lion.

This make Bob Sad Lion. I still can't get used to EA mentioned with Bioware...

Oh well...

Jeff 02-12-2008 02:09 PM

Excellent. Now lets just hope my rig can play it.

igyman 02-12-2008 02:36 PM

Oh, yeah, I've always said PC is the only platform I'll ever need. Yeeeeeehaaaaaaaaawwwww!!!!!! :3pdance:

Jason Skywalker 02-12-2008 03:08 PM

Words cannot express my happiness.

"The game is will be released for the PC in May 2008."

JoeDoe 2.0 02-12-2008 03:21 PM

I think I saw somewhere that Devil May Cry 4 will be coming out for PC also, but its cool that those who own PCs can play this awesome game too :D

mimartin 02-12-2008 03:27 PM

I can't wait. Oh wait, I didn't wait...Still I will buy it again for the PC.

Very good news, now PC users will get to experence as Fox News described Mass Effect “Luke Skywalker meets Debbie does Dallas.” :D

Lance Monance 02-12-2008 03:35 PM

:bounfire2 - This describes my current mood better than any words could.

HerbieZ 02-12-2008 04:02 PM

I already have it but im definately getting it for pc. Im gonna duel play it and go insane.

DeadYorick 02-12-2008 04:26 PM

W00t. I knew that Mass Effect would be another Kotor. Awesome news on Bioware's part. Awesome idea as well. Lets hope we can mod it

Jae Onasi 02-12-2008 05:56 PM

Awesome news!! I'm really looking forwrd to this game.

Marius Fett 02-12-2008 06:05 PM

Never played this TBH...

I'll get it and try it. :D

Alkonium 02-12-2008 06:08 PM

*Prays to the game gods that his computers can run it*
Would it be too nerdy, even for a Lucasforums member, to name my character Jack?

Uilleand 02-12-2008 06:13 PM

No...not too nerdy...but be forewarnd...I already have "Jak" Shepard...LAWLZ...

(I also hold the title Queen of all that is Nerd-dom and Dorkery)

I'll call mine Alan Shepard. It fits! :)

Emperor Devon 02-12-2008 08:19 PM

Wow, this is only what, only three months after it was out for the 360? Remind me never to take BioWare seriously when they announce future titles as console-exclusive.

(Not that I mind, of course, but I am somewhat worried for my health - playing Torment, BG2, Mask of the Betrayer and ME all within the span of eight months may cause me to implode from the awesome.)

Despite Mask of the Betrayer sitting in a box right by your computer? For shame! Twenty lashes with a wet noodle!

Your spelling is also terrible. o_Q

RedHawke 02-12-2008 09:33 PM

Oh boy! Another game to sit on my shelf and get dusty! :xp: (Still need to get The Witcher, and VTM Bloodlines)

:yelhelp: I am trapped in Stormreach... send platnium pieces!

Hah--you still have VtMB calling your name, so I don't even want to hear it. :xp:

You try thumbing keys on a smartphone in between patients and see how well you spell, too. ;P

Rogue Nine 02-12-2008 10:23 PM

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I was thinking of picking up a 360 just so I could play this game and Assassin's Creed, but it looks like I won't have to. ;D

Char Ell 02-12-2008 11:02 PM

Dreams do come true!!!

Hats off to BioWare and EA for working this out with Microsoft and for showing the love to the PC gaming community. :hattip: Now where do I pre-order? :D

Point Man 02-12-2008 11:32 PM

Well, it looks like the tax refund is going toward a new graphics card and monitor to optimize the eye candy :)

Rogue Nine 02-12-2008 11:51 PM

Ooh, ooh! Which one, jimbo?

Meowster 02-13-2008 01:04 AM

Ooh, wonderful! This game looks marvelous, however, I had no 360 so I felt all hope was lost. And then this happends!

I'm probably going to need to upgrade my computer three years. So out of date...

Serpentine Cougar 02-13-2008 01:27 AM

Looks like this will be THE version of the game to get then, 'cuz of mod possiblities and everything. Can't wait!

Ghost Down 02-13-2008 11:20 AM

Any idea what the system requirements will be?

Prime 02-13-2008 11:23 AM

Wow, that was a lot faster than I thought it would take. I guess I need to start looking at new machines.

I wonder how moddable it will be??

adamqd 02-13-2008 01:12 PM

I hope We can mod it to be Star Wars!!

Mass Effect was a massive disappointment to me (IMO), but the basis for a good game was there, graphics were awesome etc. Maybe I can make it a game I enjoy

dewayne26 02-13-2008 02:41 PM

lol i'm was mainly getting a xbox360 in june was for Mass effect and maybe Force Unleashed now i'm not so sure i will lol

swphreak 02-13-2008 05:50 PM

Now to see if the texture pop ins and loading times are fixed/faster.

Negative Sun 02-13-2008 09:40 PM

Let's hope it's not like Crysis or has at least a 8800GTX bundles with it :)

Kicka$$ stuff, can't wait...

Pho3nix 02-13-2008 09:42 PM

This is great news, and as others have stated above ^ I hope the system requirements aren't bat**** crazy.

Of course, Jae can't know this, or she'll spend the money before I get a chance. So keep it quiet.

Rogue Nine 02-14-2008 02:30 AM

I'd recommend this one, as it's a whole bunch cheaper than the PNY version.

Aash Li 02-14-2008 03:41 AM

O.O SO glad I didnt buy a 360... this was the only game that made me want to buy one. :D

Cant wait to buy it!

Probably not, Lucasarts seems to have a certain fondness for putting a stop to Starwars mods for games not released by them.

Great news that a PC version is in the works, seems like it's time to start caring about this game and see what it is about. I just hope the system requirements aren't too draconian. :)
